L&T partnered with BAE to manufacture BvS10-Sindhu AATV for Indian Army. – Indian Defense Analysis


On 14th Sept. 14, 2023 — BAE Systems Inc. and Larsen & Toubro Limited (L&T) have partnered to bring the world-leading Articulated All-Terrain Vehicle (AATV), the BvS10, to the Indian market. The two companies have signed an agreement to offer the BvS10 for an Indian Armed Forces programme. 

Under the agreement, L&T is the prime bidder for the Indian market, with the support of BAE Systems Hägglunds, the Swedish manufacturer of the highly successful BvS10 family of vehicles. BAE Systems and L&T have upgraded the BvS10 to meet the specific requirements of the Indian Armed Forces. This new variant will be known as the “BvS10-Sindhu”. The AATV programme aims to deliver vehicles from L&T’s Armoured Systems Complex, Hazira along with integrated logistic support (ILS). 

The BvS10 all-terrain vehicle will demonstrate the critical capabilities the Indian Army needs during its trials planned in September 2023.

About BvS10

The BvS10  is a tracked articulated amphibious all-terrain armoured vehicle. A number of variants of this vehicle have been developed and the one displayed at Defence and security equipment international (DSEI) in London this week features a Mobile Short Range Air Defense system (MSHORAD) configuration.

The vehicle is a modular fighting platform which can carry a broad array of payloads without impacting the under-armor volume. Adaptable to a wide range of functions, the BvS10 can be integrated with weapons ranging from 5.56mm to 12.7mm, as well as a 40mm automatic grenade launcher.

The modular design of the vehicle allows the BvS10 to be reconfigured for varying missions. It can be delivered in multiple variants that include transporting personnel, command and control, ambulance service, vehicle repair and recovery, logistics support, situational awareness, as well as vehicle mounted lethality and support systems. 

The BvS10’s articulated mobility, provides optimal maneuverability across varying terrains including snow, ice, rock, sand, mud, swamps, and steep mountain environments. The vehicle’s amphibious features also allow it to swim in flooded areas or coastal waters. It can deliver personnel and supplies as well as mounted lethality to address any threat in the modern operating environment. 

For optimum security, the BvS10 offers protection against ballistics and anti-tank mines, while smoke grenade launchers provide additional protection. It has a high payload capacity of up to six tonnes.

Vehicle is currently in service in Austria, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, and the United Kingdom amongst others. It is also on order for the German Army. Its unarmored variant has won the U.S. Army’s competition for its Cold Weather All-Terrain Vehicle (CATV) program in August 2023. The U.S. Army will receive 110 vehicles over a five-year period.
